I may be relocating to Kansas (Ft. Riley area) and was wondering how the hunting and fishing is around that area? Thanks.

Milford Lake and Milford State Park are near Ft. Riley. Most property in KS is privately owned so asking permission before hunting would be quite important.

I would think deer hunting would be excellent around Fort Riley. Deer are everywhere in Kansas, so much so that they are almost a nuisance.

There use to be a controlled elk hunt and pronghorn season around Fort Riley a few years back. Don't know if they still do it and it was a drawing anyway so not a good chance of getting a permit.

Fishing is great. Farm ponds are probably the best bet.

Kansas has some good public hunting grounds...you can get a map at the wildlife management office that shows all the areas.

Southeast Kansas is some of, if not the best white tail dear hunting in the country. While that's not fort riley it's not far and Kansas in general has good dear hunting. Fishing is great. Some good bass and crappy fishing from the big lakes to the farm ponds. Down in SEK you got spoonbill and catfish on the Neosho river near Oswego and Chetopa. (I prefer farm ponds for sure) Great Pheasant, quail and duck hunting. Overall Kansas is a pretty good outdoorsman state.
